Important note: AARL is no longer published. Previous issues can be accessed through Routledge Taylor and Francis. The Journal of the Australian Library and Information Association (JALIA) is now the premier research journal of the Australian Library and Information Association. 

Australian Academic & Research Libraries was the premier research journal of the Australian Library and Information Association from 1970 to 2016. It was a quarterly journal that published original, refereed research relevant to the researcher and practitioner communities. AARL was a forum for discussing significant issues of interest to librarianship and related information fields. The Journal aimed to showcase theoretical and practice-based research undertaken in, about, and relevant to, Australia and our broader region. AARL invited contributions from authors world-wide, working across the full range of information professions, as well as those in the higher education sector and research libraries.

AARL is abstracted or indexed in Australian education index, Australian library and information science abstracts, APAIS: Australian public affairs information service, Information science abstracts, Library and information science abstracts, and Library literature. All articles which appeared in AARL are fully peer-refereed.
